Face Masks Compulsory for Bar Staff, Shop Workers, Waiters and Taxi Drivers

Updated: Nov 16, 2020

Face Mask Exemption Cards are available for those who claim pursuant the government's guidelines

British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has announced that face masks will now become compulsory for bar staff, shop workers, waiters, and taxi drivers in an effort to combat the rise in coronavirus cases in England.

Fines for a failure to wear a face mask will rise to £200 and will extend to customers when they are not seated at a table.

WireNews has produced a Face Mask or Face Covering Exemption card that meets the relevant requirements and will reduce the chance of confrontation with shop staff or 'Karens'. The cost per card (including Second-Class "Signed For" Royal Mail and VAT) is £5.90.

Exemption Cards

Some people may feel more comfortable showing something that says they do not have to wear a face covering. These cards are NOT ID cards.

This could be in the form of an exemption card, badge or even a home-made sign. This is a personal choice and is not necessary in law.

Those who have an age, health or disability reason for not wearing a face-covering should not be routinely asked to give any written evidence of this. Written evidence includes exemption cards. (Source: Gov.uk)
